"performing heritage" and related subjects: some basic books

One Place After Another: Site-specific Art and Locational Identity
by M Kwon
Cambridge Mass., MIT Press; New Ed edition, 2004

Site-specific art emerged in the late 1960s in reaction to the growing commodification of art and the prevailing ideals of art's autonomy and universality. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, as site-specific art intersected with land art, process art, performance art, conceptual art, installation art, institutional critique, community-based art, and public art, its creators insisted on the inseparability of the work and its context. In recent years, however, the presumption of unrepeatability and immobility encapsulated in Richard Serra's famous dictum "to remove the work is to destroy the work" has been challenged by new models of site specificity and changes in institutional and market forces. One Place after Another offers a critical history of site-specific art since the late 1960s and a theoretical framework for examining the rhetoric of aesthetic vanguardism and political progressivism associated with its many permutations. It examines site specificity as a complex cipher of the unstable relationship between location and identity in the era of late capitalism. The book addresses the work of, among others, John Ahearn, Mark Dion, Andrea Fraser, Donald Judd, Renee Green, Suzanne L "

How does place affect performance praxis? How are geographical, cultural and artistic identities created and sustained within different places?

Performance and Place (Performance Interventions)
by Leslie Hill and Helen Paris (Editors)
London, Palgrave, 2006

"Synopsis (the bolds are mine)
Featuring a mix of both practitioners and scholars, this much-needed volume explores the sites of contemporary performance, and the notion of place. This significant and timely collection examines how we experience performance's many and varied sites as part of the fabric of the art work itself, whether they are institutional or transient, real or online. Featuring contributors including Johannes Birringer, Laurie Beth Clark, Jennifer Parker Starbuck and Paul Heritage, this exciting volume provides Performance Studies with a core text addressing these profound issues, and emerges at the beginning of a long discourse on the subject within the field."


Performing Tourist Places (New Directions in Tourism Analysis)
by Joergen Ole Baerenholdt, Wolfgang Framke, Jonas Larsen, Michael Haldrup, John Urry
London, Ashgate, 2004

This book looks at the making and the consuming of places in the contemporary world. Illustrated through various case-studies from Denmark, it considers how places, performances and peoples intersect. It examines the fascinating circumstances through which visitors to a place, in part, produce that place through their performances. Places are intertwined with people through various systems that generate and reproduce performances in and of that place. These systems comprise networks of 'hosts, guests, buildings, objects and machines' that contingently realize particular performances of specific places. The studies featured here develop an exciting 'new mobility' paradigm emerging within the social sciences."
